It's Getting STEAMy at East Mississippi Library

When renovation plans began on the Bay Springs Municipal Library, a branch of the East Mississippi Regional Library, it was of paramount importance that the new children's section be a place where kids come come to learn, discover, and create using the fundamentals of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math) learning. While the library has always been a place where knowledge is accessible through the written word, kids can now visit the library to use building blocks, markers, crayons, magnets, and puzzles to develop their problem-solving and collaborative learning skills. They can also now check out and take home educational digital learning tablets, extending the use of these materials far beyond the library walls. Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant funding brought the vision the library had for their new children's section to life in a way that would not have been otherwise possible, and has given the young patrons a library experience never before available in the rural community.
